FYI, yesterday I tested the MyFlash 4GB SD Card, made by AData, claimed speed of 150x. When recording HD video thecamera just stops recording after 3 seconds. It worked fine for digital pictures. I have sent it back for a refund and ordered the PQI 4gb card instead, since Steve says he tested it with the HD1.

It's not a speed of the card issue, but the compatibility of the cards can be differentiated within a single brand based on the speed of a given 4GB card.

All of the 4GB cards that I have seen on the market were introduced up to 6 months prior to the FAT32 standard being ratified.Different speed 4GBcards within asinglebrand can have different chips within them that render them faulty with various SD products while others within the same brand can be flawless.

In order to exceed 2GB, the FAT32 architecture is required. Major brands generally do not release products until the standards are ratified. The standard was ratified on January 04, 2006 barely early enough to meet the firstproduction schedule of the HD1.

Even though the HD1 is compatible with the FAT32 architecture, most, if not all, of the 4GB cards out todaywere "pre-standard" cards and may not be compatible with the HD1 or other hardware devices. The name brands of the SD memory industry have yet to release 4GB cards. When they do, I suspect that they will all be fully compatible with the HD1 and all other SD compatible products. Until then, you should consider sticking with 2GB cards unless you are sure that the specific card you wish to purchase is compatible not only in the HD1, but also in other SD compatible devices from PDA's to cell phones that you might wish to use thecardwith in the future.

Hi

I had the exact same problem with the exact same card. You need to go through the cameras menu's and format the card from the camera. (Note formating it from my computer didnt work, only from the camera).

It worked fine after that.
